Expanded Line of Industrial Modems

Oct. 8, 2010
Phoenix Contact's expanded line of industrial modems now provides more options for remote communication with machines and systems.

A new DSL modem and a cellular modem join the company's analog modems, making it easier to share data in remote control, SCADA and automatic alarming applications.

The new cellular modems transmit Ethernet and I/O data over the mobile phone network. The system can send digital or analog data as SMS text messages for remote alarming. An integrated firewall and VPN ensure reliable protection from manipulation and data theft.

The DSL modem transmits data up to 30 Mbps and distances reaching 10 km (six miles). The modems can communicate serial, Profibus or Ethernet data over existing copper cables. Using current infrastructure will reduce installation cost and start-up time. The modem integrates remote external stations and substations into a private network.

The cellular and DSL modems join Phoenix Contact's popular analog modems, which use the worldwide public telephone network. These dial-up modems communicate serial or Ethernet data from remote industrial locations.

The modem family's rugged housing is designed for industrial use. They also have web-based management for easy configuration and integrated safety functions.
